US Treasury under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen (L), speaks on combatting illicit finance in the Middle East during a press conference on April 23, 2013 at the Foreign Press Center in Washington, DC. The Treasury Department today named two Lebanese exchange houses, Kassem Rmeiti & Co. For Exchange (Rmeiti Exchange) and Halawi Exchange Co. (Halawi Exchange), as foreign financial institutions of primary money laundering concern under Section 311 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Section 311), the first time the Department has used Section 311 against a non-bank financial institution. Today�s action reflects the Treasury Department�s continuing commitment to target illicit financial networks that launder millions of dollars in funds for narcotics traffickers and that, in the process, provide substantial financial benefits to the terrorist organization Hizballah. At right is DEA special agent Derek Maltz, who leads the agency's Special Operations Division. AFP PHOTO/Mandel NGAN (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images)
